Video: Landing where nobody has before

Not all airplanes need a runway to land, as this incredible video shows. Ride along with Trent Palmer in his experimental taildragger as he creates his own landing strip on a ridge in northern Nevada. While you shouldn’t try this in your Cherokee, it does show the freedom and excitement that comes with a Private Pilot certificate.

John knows how lucky he is to go to work every day at an airport. As Vice President of Sporty’s Pilot Shop’s Catalog Division, he says, “I get to hang around airplanes all the time, flying regularly and testing new products for the catalog.” Coming from an aviation family, John grew up in the back of small airplanes and learned to fly as a teenager. Ever since, he has been hooked on anything with wings and regularly flies a Citabria, a Pilatus PC-12 and a Robinson R44 helicopter. Despite his love of low and slow flight, John says, “I love the challenge of IFR flying in the system. Seeing the runway lights as you break out on approach is a thrill.”
